Xbox One exclusive fitness game Shape Up debuts at Ubisoft’s E3 2014 conference

Shape Up is a newly-announced fitness game from Ubisoft that aims to actually be fun to play, as opposed to something of a chore you do grudgingly because it’s that or succumb to hypertension.


During its E3 2014 conference, Ubisoft showed off a couple of challenges from the game, such as a push up race – the player characters on screen were burdened by bigger and more impressive objects on their backs, and it genuinely looked kind of fun.

A cardio demo was also shown and did not look easy – hopefully there’ll be some intro challenges for certain out-of-shape games journalists.

The Xbox One exclusive uses Kinect, so, well. I hope you have one, now that Microsoft has dropped the mandatory thing.

Look at some videos. With your eyeballs. VIDEO GAMES.

    It’s interesting how this was mentioned at Ubisofts presser and not Microsofts.

    I think that Ubisoft has enough faith in this game selling that it could make the Kinect viable for developers. Only the sales will be able to tell.
